In reply to a letter from P.H. Newby, Letter from P.H. Newby to J.R.R. Tolkien • 20 April 1954 (#1360)[1] Tolkien says that a talk on the Third Programme would be a suitable subject but notes that it would be a controversial subject. He says however that he is not an expert on modern writers on this subject and does not have time to take part.

He asks Newby if the BBC would be interested in broadcasting his dialogue on the Battle of Maldon https://www.tolkienguide.com/guide/books/19[2] for the anniversary of the battle in August.

The letter can be found in the BBC Written Archives Centre.
